Winter Ride 2014
Just having fun with good friends
A New Season is upon us!
Welcome 2015! I hope everyone had enough of winter and are eager to get the 2015 summer season started.
We have a good line up for rides this year and none of them too difficult. This year's line up of rides will permit
us to train new leaders, tail, and guides. So if you're interested in learning just let the leader of the ride know
that you would like to learn about volunteering on leading, tailing or even guiding. We are also taking names of people
who would like to take a course on using the Defibrillator and CPR. The club will pay your portion of the cost if you
join and participate as a Health & Safety representative on our rides.
I got asked on several occasion why do we only have 8 rides this year. Well the
answer to that is simple, just not enough people stepping up to plate to lead, guide or tail. This has been an ongoing
issue with always the same people doing all the work, and those people have been at it for several years hoping that more
people are going to attempt to help. When we ask for help, we have a lot people volunteering to scout the trails, but
scouting the trails is the responsibility of the Leader and Tail of the ride so that they know what to expect when they actually
do the ride. If you're worried about Leading or Tailing, you shouldn't, the hardest part of leading or Tailing is to
know where you're going, the rest is easy. So I hope everyone gets out there this season and has fun.
Interested in helping? Just click here to send us an e-mail, even if you have a recommendation for new ride, feel free to send it to us, after all it is YOUR CLUB!
